A few years ago I found a used Stihl FS85 on ebay for $cheap. It had
seen a lot of abuse but seeing how Stihl's engines are designed pretty well
I took a chance and bought it. Rebuilt the carb and replaced the fuel
lines and throttle cable and now it works fine. It's a bit over-powered for
use around the house but it did a good job clearing out fence rows on my
My only problem with this guy is the fuel tank grommets don't make a tight
seal so it will leak around the fuel lines if turned on its side. Seems the
lines need to be just a hair thicker...
